Wounded Heroes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that serves Heroes – current and former members of the United States Armed Forces, police, firefighters, paramedics, EMS personnel and healthcare workers. All Heroes have wounds from their service. Some wounds are visible. Some are not. Emotional injuries, mental injuries, brain injuries, are just as tender as the broken bones we can see. We mentor to reintegrate into civilian life.
Our mission is to honor, empower, and rebuild emotional wellness through REBOOT Recovery courses, connection adventure trips, and mentoring on top down and bottom up therapies so the Hero can create their own personalized Whole Health Script. “Follow Me” to Recondition the Mind, Rebuild the Body, and Restore the Soul. All team members are non-paid volunteers. 100% of donations go towards REBOOT Recovery courses, connection adventure trips, and mentoring.
REBOOT Recovery offers faith-based trauma healing courses designed to help Heroes and their spouse/significant other recover from the spiritual and moral wounds of war, and/or service-related trauma. You won’t find shortcuts or easy answers, but instead you’ll find solutions that last. The first hour of each week is dedicated to the REBOOT Recovery material. The second hour a guest speaker presents different topics to help guide the participants to develop their own Whole Health Script. Our guests speakers bring knowledge and mentorship in the areas of exercise, diet, faith, substance abuse, chiropractic care, acupuncture, mindfulness, primary care, mental health, resume writing, social media, housing/VA loans, financial planning, tax preparation, and legal advice.

Regardless of who we are – our backgrounds, our professions, our religion, race or creed – we are all driven to fulfill primal needs that have been encoded into our nervous systems for centuries. Connection is a primal human need. Humans needs to feel connected with someone or something to experience a life of meaning. We achieve connection through activities like hunting trips, fishing trips, group fitness events, and sporting events. Our Heroes will build lasting friendships and feel connected to others who have shared experiences. These events are life-changing and invaluable to those who have served and sacrificed.
We provide mentorship to help Heroes create a routine that allows them to continue working on their mental wellbeing and physical health. With the ultimate goal to integrate back into an everyday life. We help to create a customized combination of Top Down and Bottom Up Therapies for each Hero.
We provide education for Heroes on the different types of mental wellness programs. Some of the mental wellness therapies we suggest are one-on-one talk therapy, group talk therapy, REBOOT Recovery, EMDR, etc. We help Heroes find mental wellness therapies through the VA and local mental wellness health professionals.
We connect Heroes to physical restorative therapies. Some of the therapies we may suggest are CrossFit, Personal Trainers, Yoga Instructors, Chiropractic Care, Acupuncturists, Occupational Therapists, and/or other functional medicine providers. The focus is the physical health, strength, and well-being of the Hero.
